There is so much to say about Nicole's photography. First of all, most photographers who take photos for weddings and such, always have a finished product that looks so staged and almost out-dated. Not Nicole! Her photos actually come out looking like photography, something I want to frame and hang up on my house. She did an incredible job of capturing the true essence of our wedding and I couldn't be happier with the finished product! Thank you so much Nicole for creating ever lasting memories in the form of photos! PS. I can't stop looking at all them. More...

I am so excited to finally write this review! Nicole is hands down amazing! In a few words, she's organized, smart, creative, professional, talented, and a super fast shooter!

My husband and I spent months looking for the right photographer for our wedding. When a friend recommended Nicole, we looked at her site, called her, and never looked back. She is such a professional and truly captures the most important moments with her lens. We did our engagement photos in February and loved every single one. When it came time for our wedding day, my husband and I were both a little nervous about having enough time to capture everything we wanted. We both have large families and a large bridal party. Nicole wasn't worried at all. She had us provide a super specific shot list and between Nicole, her second shooter, and her assistant they had us covered and then some! We just got our photos back and we cannot stop gushing about them. She captured so many details and moments I didn't even know she shot. I can't wait to make our album selections. I would recommend her 100 times over!

I consider Nicole more than just our photographer, but a spiritual guide. Her photos are clearly evidence that she's wickedly talented and has a keen and perceptive eye, but you want more than that with your wedding day photographer. And she, is, was, and will forever be more than just that. From the second we connected, I felt like I was in the best hands possible. Her wisdom and advice that she bestowed up on us, allowed us to make decisions that would alter the day's happenings FOR THE BETTER. We talked everyday, for almost a month, leading up to the wedding, bouncing ideas off of each other and brainstorming the perfect setups (I'm a TV Producer, so I need some control - but, she knew how to work with my "micromanaging/Type A/control-freak" style). The day before the wedding, she did some unbelievable scouting and found, a First Look/Wedding Party photo setup, that, to this day, still blows my mind. She hunted high and low for the perfect location, and my goodness, did she come through!

Now, let's talk wedding day. I have a tendency to get worked up over little things - but she had this calming ease about her, that allowed me to relax and completely have faith in not only her, but the day, in general. While getting ready, or taking "preparation" pictures, I just looked to her, and it was like meditating. That guiding light helped me through the Father/Daughter First Look, the Bride/Groom First Look, Romance photos, Wedding Party photos - up until the ceremony. Then after the ceremony, when we had the chaos -- the "family shots" (my husband has a HUGE Italian family) - she NAILED it.

Then after that, it was like I never saw her again. That's because she's a gosh darn NINJA! She was everywhere, at all places - omnipresent. She captured things, I would have never imagined - from the world's best candids, to the decor (which my mother and I slaved over), to every single possible moment --not just of my husband and me, but of our guests, as well. I'd be remiss, if I didn't mention her bad-ass second photographer, Allison, who mirrored Nicole's ability to capture everything, without being in the way and in your face - but with a smile and a charm, that you can't help but adore.

Once the day was over, she sent me sneak peeks that brought tears to my eyes. One of my favorite things that she did was grabbing the most perfect picture of my mom and me, so I could get a canvas made for her birthday, which was a month later. Nicole culled through every single picture, stopped down on other projects, and did this favor for me. My mom lost it, when she opened it. Nicole did the same thing for my family's holiday card, as well.

I gained more than just a wonderful collection of the most memorable day of my life (which, unfortunately I don't remember too much of - thanks goodness for Nicole), but a friend, who I intend to take advantage of for all milestones in my life :)!

Nicole shoots GORGEOUS pictures. She has a sense of timing, composition, framing and just general romanticism that putz her heads and shoulders over her competitors. Also, no small thing: She's a wonderful human being. She draws you in and puts you at ease with her charisma and her empathy. I can't say enough good things about this pro! More...

Nicole's photographs are amazing! How much she treasures love and life is truly apparent when looking at her photographs and I don't think there has been a single photo of her's that has not made me smile :) Nicole has a way about her that makes everyone feel comfortable around her and it is abundantly clear how much she truly cares for each one of her clients. I pretty much want to go out and meet my future groom just so Nicole can shoot my wedding lol (just kidding), but I know that when that day does come, Nicole will be the one capturing my special day!

Bobby and I simply fell in love with Nicole over the course of our day. I can't imagine anyone else having been in charge this weekend. You professionally, assertively, and patiently wrangled our lively wedding party and families and put up with the selfie stick competition. Nicole, you are just awesome. We can't begin to thank you enough for being a part of our wedding. You made it easy for us to relax and enjoy ourselves, knowing we were in great hands. I'm gushing. I could go on. I just want you to know how perfect everything was. Thank you. More...

Nicole was everything my husband and I wanted and more when it came to our wedding day. She is organized, professional and incredibly down to earth. As a perfectionist, I knew the moment I met Nicole that I would not have to worry about a thing, and I was right. She was also like a ninja on the day of the wedding, all over the place but you would never know it. We are so thankful to have beautiful photos to remember our special day and lucky to have found the incredible soul that is Nicole. More...
